RAIN...at last!!

It's Monday & it's chucking it down...Thank goodness Oliver's school is closed today and I'm starting my new gardening job tomorrow. I'd be soaked through by now & you can't really ring in on day 2 with influenza. I shall spend the day cleaning & sharpening my tools in preparation & dig out my trusty kagoole.
I saw a pot of poppies like this in a DIY store the other day & was inspired by just how many colours you can get them in...and somehow, despite my 'plant addiction',  I managed to leave the store without them. BUT, they were on my mind all day so I made this card using a beautiful freebie from Digisparkle. It's coloured with Promarkers, cut into even sized strips & then stuck back down but leaving small gaps...I know...more randomness!

Well, I'm glad poppies are on your mind, because you massive pants are on mine!! Thank the lord you don't get them wet, they'd take years to dry out! Hope tomorrow is fab. Oh and I love your poppies. xxx
